Joan F.

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with a family vacation in Bethany Beach. I told them all, “ What I want is family portraits!” Kristin did the research and discovered Portraits In The Sand. What a lucky find....we could not be happier with our treasured memories of our wonderful family time. Thank you.

Barbara F.

I treasure our portraits from 2007 of my husband, dog, and me. My favorite is a black and white portrait of our feet with my niece, husband and their boys with our Scottie in color! In 2011 I had Dave take photos of our almost year old granddaughter. The portraits were a gift to my son and daughter-in-law. Fabulous keepsakes!

John B.

Used Dave and Carrie for our 50th anniversary, and we loved the work they did. Boat - grandson-family: we just couldn't help smiling!!

Craig M.

Dave's portraits of our family are some of my most prized possessions. We have used him twice-- as our family has grown. He is easy to work with, wonderfully artistic, I highly recommend him.

Lisa C. - Red Sapphire Consulting

I am so grateful for Carrie and Memories In The Sand. They introduced me to their picture organizing platform, walked me through the process and offered help along the way. Almost 30,000 photos later, I am ready to start printing books for my God-children, husband and his family. They made it so easy!

Ria M.

I had our family portrait done several years ago and love looking at it over my fireplace. It evokes happy memories and brings summer into my house year-round! Portraits In The Sand did great work and was easy to schedule and work with. Highly recommend!!!

Jean, Dave, Charlie and Reba - Elkton, MD

Hi Dave, You really did put us on your website! Thanks, I'll tell all the family and friends to check it out. We love the portrait...can't decide whether to hang it at the beach house or our permanent home where we can see it all the time. I think I've told you this before, but again...your website is really great! Look forward to working with you again.

Kate Downes Walker Director - Sussex Dance Academy

David, On behalf of myself and the students and parents of the Academy, thank you for the amazing photo shoot you did for our "Dance Showcase". The quality of the photos is superb and I have received numerous compliments on them. Thank you also for making the students feel so comfortable around you; it helped make the process go smoothly. Not to mention the efficiency in getting the photos back to me so that I could give them to the parents prior to our performance. Your timeliness was appreciated by all. Lastly, thank you for the posters that you created for Sussex Dance Academy. I have already matted and framed them and they look great! Your passion for your art is reflected in your work and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Ashley - Lewes, DE

It is the most amazing birth announcement I have ever seen. Every time I look at it, I get goose bumps. It's just amazing. I love it.

Meridith - Elmendorf AFB, Alaska

You have come higly reccommended. My husband, our families and I love your work. We have viewed your photos on your website and are looking forward to working with you. Your portraits are so original, and really capture the essence of the families...


You did a great job on the portraits! My husband was thrilled that the whole process was relatively painless. We all laughed about the body sandwich shot, but it really was a very attractive photo. There really were no duds. I've been showing the images and several people have asked for your number. We were amazed at how quickly the light changed and how the colors were so dramatically affected. So glad we're not the hillbilly family like our Washington photograph portrayed us.

Valerie - Germantown, MD

What service!! We just loved them. Dave did such a great job even with an uncooperative 18 month old. Braden is a handful! Stacy and Frank were really pleased. Stacy said Dave was such a professional.


Hi! Just wanted to drop a note to say that is an excellent portrait of my dog! I was at Dewey Beach last weekend with my red brindle girl Reilley. It is a great picture! Thanks for a great pic!
